GOP congressman says Treasury Department changed rules to help Hunter Biden

The Treasury Department was accused of corruption last week when the House Oversight Committee’s ranking Republican member accused it of changing rules to protect Hunter Biden. 

According to the Daily Caller, Kentucky Rep. Jame Comer sent Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen a letter regarding changes to the rule on Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs).

“The Biden Administration is restricting Congress’ access to SARs, and Committee Republicans are investigating whether this change in longstanding policy is motivated by efforts to shield Hunter Biden and potentially President Biden from scrutiny,” he wrote.

“Though the Committee requested documents and information ‘no later than June 8, 2022,’ the Department of the Treasury has provided no documents or information,” Comer continued.

Congressman says Biden family “racked up at least 150 suspicious activity reports”

“We now know Hunter Biden and other Biden family members have racked up at least 150 suspicious activity reports for their shady foreign business deals,” the Republican lawmaker pointed out.

The House Oversight Committee member later repeated his criticism during an interview with Fox News Digital on Thursday.

“The Treasury Department’s sudden change of longstanding policy appears to be a broader pattern by the Biden Administration to run cover for Hunter Biden and possibly hide information about whether Joe Biden benefited financially from the Biden family’s business transactions,” Comer told Fox News Digital Thursday.

“This Administration must drop the political charade immediately and allow Congress access to any bank violations that may have been made by the Biden family and their associates,” he complained.

This is far from being the first time that government officials have been accused of covering for the president’s wayward son.

Illegal gun purchase raises questions

Last year, Fox News reported that a group of Republican senators sent letters to the Secret Service and other law enforcement agencies in response to a claim that federal agents attempted to cover up Biden’s illegal purchase of a handgun.

“After the firearm was discarded, the U.S. Secret Service (USSS) allegedly became involved and sought paperwork from the Federal Firearm Licensee (FFL) connected to Hunter Biden’s purchase of the firearm,” Sens. Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson wrote.

The owner of the gun store reportedly ‘refused to supply the paperwork’ to the USSS agents due to suspicion that ‘the Secret Service officers wanted to hide Hunter’s ownership of the missing gun in case it were to be involved in a crime,'” they added.
